Home..... Menu..... Common name index..... Scientific name index..... Glossary ..... Clovers..... Medics ...... Peas ......


Family: Fabaceae (Pea family).

Native to Europe and Asia.

Occurrence: A widespread weed in forest, roadsides, lawns and waste areas.

Identification: The narrow clover leaves and the tiny pink pea-flowers borne in furry egg-shaped clusters are distinctive, and make this clover easy to recognise

Similar Species: Narrow-leaf Clover (*Trifolium angustifolium) is more erect, and has longer, bristly flower-heads. Its leaves are much longer and much narrower, and may not at first be recognised as a clover.
